TIME & MEMORY

In 17SS, Creative Director Renli Su inspired by multiple mythical stories about the ocean and angels of bravery.  The first story is from Christian mythological stories. According to Christian angelic hierarchy, Virtues are said to be the chief bestowers of grace and valor. Like a guiding light for humans feeling lost and dejected, they watch over nature and encourage humans. The second story is about Lin Moniang, which is the human name of Ma-tsu, the Chinese patron goddess hailing from Renli’s hometown of Fujian province in China. She was a goddess who was said to protect seafarers and fishermen out at sea.  These mythological stories have a common thread of inspiration and hope when times are tough, and this was a focal point of Renli’s exploration.  ​
